Hurricane Florence is weakening slightly as it continues toward the Carolina coastal areas, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Wednesday, adding that life-threatening storm surge and rainfall were still expected. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.
The storm will slow down because of pushback from a trough - an extended area of low atmospheric pressure - now over Texas, Stacy Stewart, an NHC senior hurricane specialist, said in the update. "Disaster is at the doorstep and it's coming in".
The center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Wednesday night, and approach the coast of North Carolina or SC in the hurricane warning area on Thursday and Friday, NHC said. "We're kind of at the mercy of the storm". By Tuesday the storm is expected to move into West Virginia as it dissipates.
Tens of thousands of homes and businesses could be flooded in North Carolina alone, Governor Cooper warned. Nathan Deal declared an emergency but did not immediately order any evacuations.
With South Carolina's beach towns more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, OH vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand.
Industrial waste, including toxic ash from power plants, could also be spread by flooding from the massive storm, which has caused mandatory evacuations of coastal areas in both Carolinas and Virginia, the AP reports.

Time is running short to get out of the way of Hurricane Florence, a monster of a storm that has a region of more than 10 million people in its potentially devastating sights.
Storm surge occurs when the hurricane-force winds blow over the ocean water.
The Wilmington area is also at the center of predictions for extreme levels of rainfall; while inland area can expect 7 to 20 inches, Wilmington can expect 2 to 3 feet of rain, according to the NWS - that's likely to eclipse the monthly record in the span of just several days.
"I'm not approaching Florence from fear or panic", said Brad Corpening (35), who planned to ride out the storm in his boarded-up delicatessen in Wilmington. "It's going to happen".
"We're just trying to plan for the future here, not having a house for an extended period of time", David Garrigus said.
Officials in New Hanover County, which includes Wilmington, have stockpiled enough food and water for 60,000 people for four days, along with more than 28,000 tarps. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate because of flooding.
Justice and Homeland Security would have 45 days to make a determination and notify the president to trigger the sanctions. Coats said intelligence agencies were working around the clock to protect the midterm elections.
Watergate reporter Bob Woodward published a book recently that depicted the current chaos in the White House as well. Holding off electoral disaster becomes even more hard when that president has a low approval rating.
We're still trying to figure that out. "I've been racing most of my life and I'm not ready to give it up". Kahne announced in August his retirement from full-time NASCAR competition, effective at the end of 2018.
US President Donald Trump has authorised emergency measures to free up federal funds to help those responding to the storm. An intense wave, as well as heavy rains, will announce on Thursday on the coast of Las Carolinas, the arrival of Florence.
If both sets of tariffs go ahead it would mean virtually all of China's United States exports would be subject to new tariffs. Trump said last week that he also had tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods ready "on short notice if I want".
Although the cases have been reported throughout Serbia , most incidents have been registered in Belgrade (141). Symptoms range from slight headache and low-grade fever to welling of the brain tissue and in rare case, death.
